    Default Buying from abroad - USA

    Good day

    I just want to know if anyone has bought anything from the states before, specifically from pyramyd air and airgun depot? I found what I'm looking for here, at both these online stores and just wanna know if anyone has bought here before and if all went well?

    Thanks a lot

    Cheers

    They don’t ship to SA at all. Pyramyd Air only ships to within the US and to get someone to send you something from there is so crazy expensive. 0.5kg box is over $200 with UPS.

    However if you send it to someone living there and they bring it in for you, won’t be an issue. They are pretty good.

    For shipping needs try these guys. Postbox Courier - Courier Shipping To South Africa - Parcel Couriers UK To South Africa
    The supplier post or courier to the box in USA and they then bring it in a container. Very good prices.

    Yea that’s USPS and to our post office. A HUGE risk!!!!

    I know people that have waited 3months for things.
    One of my friends ordered a phone cover and sent it with USPS, it got here 2 years later.

    I was just giving advice which is what he asked for.
    Not a good idea and I would not recommend it.

    I agree with Cor. They are good, but you must be willing to wait. It won’t get here in a week.

    Also Paypal is the best and safest form of international payment with the lowest transfer costs.

    +1 for PayPal.
    So far I've only used USPS direct deliveries to our PO, because it is cheapest, but you can wait months. Once in a while it doesn't pitch up at all.

    I'll surely give that Postbox option a try

    So I have now come to the conclusion that I'll never get to use my new rifle cos I can't get a droop compensator mount. It costs less than $20 for peet sakes. Any other ideas on how I can get ahold of one?? UTG DNT06.......
